Nitrogen For Legminous Crops
CFU – 1 x 108 per ml
HS Code – 31010099
Documents – MSDS / LABEL / FCO / COA / Trial report
Mode of action
This belongs to bacterial group and the classical example is symbiotic nitrogen fixation. Rhizobium spp. spp., detect compounds like flavinoids secreted by the roots of leguminous plants and then produce nod factors lead to formation of root nodules. The bacteria infect the legume root and form root nodules within which they reduce molecular nitrogen in to ammonia which is readily vitamins and other nitrogen containing compounds. The site of symbiosis is within the root nodules. It has been estimated that 40 – 50Kg N/ha/year is fixed by different legume crops by the microbial activities of Rhizobium spp.
Leguminous crops like Pea, Pigeon pea, Black gram, Green gram, Chick pea, Cow pea, Soybean, Peanut, Lentil, Berseem etc.
Benefits to the crop:
It has been estimated that 40 – 50 kg nitrogen/ha/year fixed by different legume crops by Rhizobium spp. and improve soil fertility for next crop. Improve the plant growth status, liberasion of micro nutrients from insoluble sources, induce systematic disease resistance. Rhizomes determine the nutrient pool for soils and facilitate growth and development of plant.
Method of application and dosage:
- Seed Treatment – Take 100 ml of Rhizobium spp. for 10 kg of seed
- Soil Application – Mix 500ml – 1.0 lit/acre of Rhizobium spp. in 40-50 kg of well decomposed F.Y.M/compost or vermi compost or field soil and broadcast in the field before sowing or broadcast up to 45 days after sowing in standing crop and irrigate the field.
- Don’t apply with chemical antibiotic.
